I’m a reporter and radio producer based in Miami. I have a book out in February with the New Press: it’s called Go Tell the Crocodiles: Chasing Prosperity in Mozambiqueexploring life on the margins of one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. You can pre-order a copy here.

I’ve written for Virginia Quarterly Review, the Miami Herald, the AtlanticSlateForeign Policy, and the Common, among others, and produced radio stories and documentaries for NPR, BBC, Marketplace, Reveal and Latino USA. I have been a fellow with the US Fulbright Program and the International Reporting Project (IRP), and speak French, Haitian Creole, Portuguese, and Spanish.


Contact me for freelance assignments and excursions. For inquiries about the book, write Beverly Rivero at the New Press. For questions about rights and permissions, please get in touch with my agent, Valerie Borchardt.
